Looking only at data is definitely not enough. At Career Angels, we also speak with C-level executives, HR Directors, Executive Search Consultants – you’ll find our weekly quantitative & qualitative reports on Market Signals. Some of them allow us to record these conversations & their insights for our audience!
This recording features: Ricarda Betzing is currently Head of HR & General Services at FCA Capital Suisse (the Swiss outlet of the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles banking & leasing body). More about her below.
We asked Ricarda about her own experience from both sides of the interviewing table:
- How has the job market changed in the last years? And due to CV–19?
- What outrageous behaviour have you experienced yourself – on both sides?
- How do you see the future of the job market?
- What tips do you have for senior candidates?
- If there’s one thing that you could change on the job market – what would that be?
… just to enlist a few questions.

She has spent most of her career in international HR management, in R&D organizations such as CERN and the European Space Agency, as well as industry (Siemens, Alstom). Ricarda holds a BA in Marketing and an MBA in HR Management & International Business. She has been promoting active involvement of HR also in strategic issues from the beginning, not only in her core disciplines talent acquisition & management, but also in a plethora of projects and in her various change management assignments.
Among other things, Ricarda is adding new emphasis to HR communication & digitalization (which incidentally will also touch upon the careers site). A nationality spread of more than two dozen nationalities on site allows for full play when it comes to her extensive linguistic skills.
While the size of FCA Capital is manageable (less than 100 employees in Switzerland), please take Ricarda’s word for it: “A small company can make a big difference.”
Should you happen to meet Ricarda off duty, you’re more likely than not to see her in her running gear as she’ might be preparing for another marathon… so much for going the extra mile ;-)
